Synopsis

Developed through decades of field and scientific research, the Miller Voice Method, (mVm) founded by Scott Miller, Head of Graduate Voice Studies at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, is a transformational ‘breath and communication’ system that enables people to reach and sustain peak captivation in performance that not only captures attention, but holds onto it. The latest neuroscience shows that different ways of breathing alters cognitive functions. mVm incorporates this knowledge and teaches you to integrate your breath with your intention.  mVm’s Active Breath is a simple, concrete, and repeatable tool which can be discovered, experienced, and implemented simply. In part 1 of 2 livestreams, certified mVm teacher Nick Curnow will introduce you to this fundamental concept.  Nick will lead you through a sequence of steps that will - with continual practice - help you discover that elusive goal of “presence.” Please note that it is recommended that you take participate in both Part 1 and Part 2 but it's not compulsory. This event will take place at 12-1pm AEDT (Syd/Melb time) and 2-3pm NZ time.
